A house that sank and was abandoned by residents in Sriwulan Village, Sayung District, Demak Regency, Central Java, Monday (2/9/2019). Abrasion, high tides and climate change are the main problems on the north coast of Central Java.

Sea level rise has become a major threat to coastal areas. The tide has become a disaster as it is getting wider inundating the land with a height that sometimes reaches 1 meter.

As a result, tidal flooding often inundates residential areas, public facilities, industries and roads in coastal areas. Tidal flooding can also inundate areas far from the coast through rivers or drainage.
